    "We wanted an expert colour and design consultant to support our major home renovation project. After an initial meeting we employed Sandra to work the colour schemes both inside and out, recommend and manage the installation of tiles, wallpaper, bathroom cabinets, lighting and curtains, and support us as we made the many decisions involved in a house renovation. Sandra quickly understood our vision and worked really effectively throughout the project. She is a really good listener, has a positive, enthusiastic approach and a sense of humour. She used her excellent trade contacts to benefit our project. Sandra gently challenged us to sometimes step outside of our comfort zone.

    We are really delighted with the end result which is definitely far better than we would have achieved by ourselves.

    Thanks Sandra for your fantastic work on our home and thanks for keeping us positive throughout the ten month project.

    "Sandra was fantastic.
    From consultation through to completion she made us feel totally comfortable with everything, which was important to us as novices.
    She gave frequent updates throughout, along with a timetable that was updated as things changed, and still delivered on time.
    Really brilliant. Very happy with the process and end result, couldn't recommend more highly!

    "I hired Sandra from RCD to manage the renovation project on my family home, which included amongst other jobs, full interior painting of the upstairs of the house, full exterior painting along with the decks & roof, custom blinds replacements, hand rail installation, carpeting 3 rooms, installing 2 x kitchen splashbacks, tiling & other repair work.
    Sandra was highly efficient at the project management role, always giving me lots of sound advice & presenting enough options for me to base my decisions on. She dealt directly with the sub-contractors, dealing with any performance & quality issues immediately and when something unusual came along she hunted out appropriate subbies out to ensure the job was done quickly & efficiently.

    I am extremely pleased with the final results & would recommend her for any future work.

    "I wanted to upgrade the interior of my house. Most of the interior was way past its best and needed repairs to bring it up to standard. I hired Sandra from Residential Colour and Design to complete the renovation and I am very glad I did.

    My 2 month interior renovation project was completely managed by Sandra from initial design concept through to completion of work. As well as supplying a whole range of colour and design options she organised and dealt with all the contractors on site. All I had to do was sit back and watch.

    She went above and beyond to provide me with a quality service. Nothing was too much trouble for Sandra. I found her very personable, honest and very reasonably priced. My new kitchen designed by Sandra ended up in an interior design magazine so the results were better than I could have hoped for. My friends cannot believe the transformation of my house. I can’t recommend Sandra and Residential Colour and Design highly enough.

    "Sandra has been working with my husband myself on a total home restoration project for our 1960\'s era home in Hillpark, Manurewa for a number of years. She has provided guidance and expertise in a large range of areas from colour, design concepts, fabric, resale benefits etc... Her experience in what works in the market place, trends that other customers have used has been invaluable. She works with you, does not impose her ideas but gently explains the benefits or otherwise. What i value most is that no matter what your budget, you always feel like a valued customer. Highly recommended and great to work with. Result is an average house which is now a stunning and wonderful warm family home."

    "I found Sandra to be both friendly and highly professional and have no hesitation in recommending her. In fact my neighbor loved my blinds so much he went and had Sandra put the same into his house!"

    "Dealing with Sandra was a pleasure. As a primary contractor myself I did not have time to keep check on our renovation. Sandra more than met my expectations and ensured the whole thing was completed on time and on budget. Constant updates meant I could focus on business without distraction. We are more than happy with the finished result and would not hesitate to recommend Residential Colour and Design."

    "I contacted Sandra a week before Christmas asking for advice on colour schemes for my home. She came to visit and we decided on colours that would work. Christmas eve she popped over with paint swatches, carpet samples and floor tiles. I loved them, she really understood my likes & dislikes. We started decorating mid January and Sandra supplied my painter with a paint spec so there was no doubt on my chosen colours. We are so happy with the colour scheme. It\'s like living in a new house. My friends & family love the colours we chose. I\'ve just ordered the Roller Blinds, which will complete the look! A small investment with a big positive result. I highly recommend and respect Sandra\'s expert knowledge."
